An artist's shop featuring sculptures, paintings and calligraphy

[ From: Jason Jia | Published: 2008-12-01 Views: 2738 | Booked times: 56 ]

Recently an artist who is good at sculpture, painting and calligraphy really impressed me. His shop is located at the famous ancient Chinese cultural street. You can find some decorations there that will bring a mysterious, oriental feel to your house.

 

Once I entered the studio, I found myself breathing a densely artistic air. So many things to see! Clay sculptures on the tables, paintings and calligraphy works on the walls¡­ To my surprise, all of them were created by the shopkeeper, Mr. Wang Hongxiang.

 

In the course of a short conversation, I learnt Mr. Wang was from a farmer¡¯s family. He became addicted to art when he was a child. His mother spent all her salary in supporting him to learn his craft. After many years of effort, Mr. Wang became an accomplished artist.

 

He showed me a clay sculpture ¨C a Buddha. The lifelike Buddha looked very attractive. Mr. Wang explained, ¡°I am a Buddhist. This sculpture won¡¯t crack anytime soon, for I created a unique way to make it.¡±

 

Then he showed me a sketch ¨C the face of an old village woman. The face was tanned and covered with a great many wrinkles, but her eyes were still shining with hope. I was touched by the sight.

 

Despite all his achievements, Mr. Wang remains humble. In his own reckoning, he will never cease to seek for perfection.
